Remember, your "deity" tried that before with the biblical flood/deluge, and it was a failure.
Your "deity" is more successful at failing than succeeding at what it wanted to accomplish.
if at first you don't succeed try try again. To bad youre just a mortal with only approx. 24,000 days given to you, if youre lucky. A third of them spent sleeping, a third working , and the rest, to young and dumb or to old and decrepit. Now Scar, don't you have some cleaning and maintenance to do?

You are so very wrong, the "wise" person never trusts, he searches for the correct answer, he NEVER takes things for face value. The "Wise" person is a skeptic who questions EVERYTHING. It is the "unwise" person who indulges in gullibility, trusting that for which there is no evidence.
Thanks for proving my claim. This is why I said defacto wise people.

Just a hint, Bongo. If you you wish to sound intelligent in a written discussion, you might want to investigate the word "too". And the use of apostrophes.

And just what is your point here? Yes we are mortal. Does this mean you approve of making sh*t up to answer questions you don't know the answer to?

So you consider it wiser to accept the fairy tales told by your parents than to investigate and decide for yourself?

You anti-process that the faithful have a great gift. We know that we know that we know.

Show me that this "ancient and powerful deity" exists. Until you do, you are just blowing hot air. You don't seem to understand this.

No, I don't "anti-precess" this. I understand that you THINK you have a great gift. I do not accept that it is a great gift. I think the idea of religious faith is one of the greatest detriments to the human condition. It makes people willing to accept things that are completely irrational, and to reject the entire concept of skepticism.

Just look at yourself for an example.

I think this is lovely but at the same time kinda sad that people cannot let others be happy.

I do and so have many others, My life is in fact, an extraordinary example of what God can do. You are tendentious and biased against religion because of some issues you've had in the past.

Hey at least he isn't your lawyer. Think of the billable hours you would get hit with! He certainly spends a lot of his time on you!
I was curious about something too. He backs whatever HL says and she says at 6 months a baby's default morality kicks in and a baby knows right from wrong and even feels remorse when doing the wrong thing. So why would tapping a baby on the butt be a problem if the baby is old enough to know right from wrong?
I'd ask Catcher but I know he won't answer it
Shiiiiiiit, you think he'd answer me?!

"Intuition" is merely a category label for some thought processes that take place at an unconscious level.
You desperately want to find an inconsistency, but that won't be possible.
In any case, you believe certain things exist without evidence.

They're just "not fully understood".....

Way to go, rational skeptic.
